The Real Housewives of New Jersey star Caroline Manzo is getting into the fashion game. Can she hack it?

Caroline Manzo's handbag collection

The Real Housewives of New Jersey star Caroline Manzo is getting into the fashion game with her own line of handbags – and they're officially launching tonight!

"Launching handbag collection today. Hope the buyers like what they see, wish me luck!!!!" Manzo tweeted Wednesday morning, along with several photos of bags in the line.

"The debut collection — a joint venture with Kristino handbags, the owner of the license for Manzo's collection — comprises about 18 styles, from wristlets to hobos and overnight bags, which range in price from $45 to $450," Women's Wear Daily wrote last month.

"I never thought in a million years I'd be doing something like this," Manzo told WWD of her new venture.

Apparently she's also released a line of dog accessories that will benefit Best Friends Animal Society. A portion of the proceeds from her handbag sales will also go to charity.

Manzo's not the only one from RHONJ with a fashion line: table-flipper Teresa Giudice also has her own fashion line for the little ones: TG Fabulicious.

Manzo's bags look nice enough, but are they worth $45 to $450? We're not sure – maybe if she throws in a date with her super-cute son Albie Manzo.

I just heard her bags will not be sold,I heard it was too much pressure for her to make all the decisions on designing the bags.So she decided to quietly walk away.

Rumor has it she backed out and left the company making the bags "holding the bag" I guess the charities she spoke of get screwed also
